Excerpts from the press release by this new, ambitious, and innovative company:

The idea of Freddy Zompa, Youpaq’s creator and director, is to revolutionize the way local shops operate. After 20 years working for great pharmaceutical companies, Freddy, now an entrepreneur, gave himself two objectives: give more attractivity and energy to an economic sector that we are all attached to, and which is starting to be under stress.
Surrounding himself with a passionate team of web professionals, graphic designers, and communication experts as well as retail professionals, he created Youpaq, a start-up that lets retail sellers join forces to react to the strong competition of the market’s larger actors.

“As a consumer, imagine being able to shop online from your butcher’s, baker’s, grocer’s, farmer, deli, winemaker,… Or better still, from your town’d weekly market, and to be able to retrieve all your shopping at a collection point near your house or your work. If this idea appeals to you, Youpaq is about to become your favorite platform.”
